$10K reward for ID of men who killed woman banking at ATM
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -
Memphis police have offered a $10,000 reward to the identification and apprehension of two unidentified men who robbed, then shot, and killed a woman Tuesday evening as she was taking out cash from an eastside automated teller machine.
A second person was also shot by the two suspects moments later.
The deadly exchange took place in the 3100 block of South Perkins at around 7 p.m., Memphis police said.
The two black suspects tried to rob the woman who was inside her car after she got cash out of the ATM, but instead shot her.
Police identified the victim as 44-year-old Runeccia Luster.
After being shot the female victim was able to get into her car, but stuck a utility pole, police said. She was later pronounced deceased after she was transported to The MED.
"It's frightening. It basically shows you they were capable of anything," said Police Director Toney Armstrong. "They wanted to win at all costs, even to go so far as to shoot a female."
While the two suspects fled South Perkins they tried to carjack a motorist in a Chevrolet Corvette. Police said the suspects struggled with the motorist but ended up shooting him two times as he drove away.
The motorist is listed in critical condition also at The MED.
One of the suspects wanted in the shootings was wearing a white hoodie, police said.
Police have also released two surveillance images of the possible suspects.
If you can assist homicide detectives you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH. You can remain anonymous.
